Coffee Talk: Documentaries & Discussions - "My Octopus Teacher""
Grab a cup off coffee (or tea, or whatever), pull up a chair & join others for an engaging chat.

Dive into new worlds & experiences through factual storytelling about real people, places & events. Watch the assigned documentary (see below), then bring your reactions, ideas, point of view & questions to join PAULA LOVE and others for an interactive discussion.

Craig Foster was diving, bare-chested, in bitterly cold waters off the southern-most tip of Africa when he saw her -- an octopus hiding under a cloak of shells and stones. Enchanted, he began following this incredibly shy creature, trying to prove he wasn't a predator by staying very still in her presence. For weeks she evaded him: hiding in her den, camouflaging herself, or pushing her liquid body into the nearest crack to escape. And then, after 26 days of near obsessive wooing, she reached out and touched him. Filmed in 2010, "My Octopus Teacher" chronicles the year Foster spent cultivating a unique bond with an extraordinary creature.
